Riding on Water

Some of the best rides can only be done (once) a year.
After a bit of road riding, followed by some snowmobile trails, and a stretch of hike-a-bike, we made our way to Moraine State Park Lake for today's ride!
At first, we were full of energy, with Sam and Richy racing each other until Sam found a bit of a snow drift, and over the bars he went!
What may have seemed a bit boring at first, turned into quite a winter workout... and a few gaps opened between riders!
Clear out here... there was no cell phone signal...
...and landmarks were few and far between.
We learned that ice cares not of Studded Tires, nor of Studded Riders!
But there were some fun and games...
...along with a bit of "Island Hopping"...
...with a strange group of "neighbors" proving we were NOT in Kansas anymore!
Near the end of the ride, the ice had melted quite a bit...
...leading to a 3-man, insantaneous & simultaneous crash!
We were all CRUSHED from this seemingly "easy" ride, but we had a great time!
